"Not Going Back"
Hip Hop Is Dead (2006)
You know in The Godfather 3—and forgive me for making so many movie references—there’s a scene when Michael Corleone says, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." And that’s a moment I think a lot of people deal with. People are always trying to focus on moving forward. That scene resonated with me big time, so "Not Going Back" is that scene. I didn’t get it from that movie, but it’s the same thing. I was just using the movie as a way to see what I’m saying. You’re struck with those moments in your life where you don’t want to be pulled backwards, and you feel that you're being pulled from all different directions, so "Not Going Back" was that kind of thing.
